The excitement builds

It feels like the last weekend of Mardi Gras around here, except football is the main focus. To those outside of this area who cannot understand the local feelings regarding Monday night's game, Chris Martel so eloquently speculates in this post....

Here's the last paragraph:
Monday night's game is perhaps the biggest in Saints history. It may not be the biggest on paper, but symbolically, it's huge. The team and the city have never shared such an intimate bond. Their story is our story. Their rebirth is our rebirth. Of all the significant events since Katrina, this might be the only one not mired by controversy and division. Monday night will be one of the first times since Katrina that we're all unified in the pursuit of a common goal and dream. And that's definitely something worth celebrating.
